Reporting to the COO of a $800mm corporation. This position will have five direct reports and will be responsible for leading operations for a 2 shift metal fabrication operation in all aspects of plant performance from receiving of raw material through receipt of product by customer. This includes leadership of all phases of manufacturing including scheduling, production, quality control, warehouse management and freight management. Ability to implement lean manufacturing and continuous improvement methodologies is essential.
Experience with the following processes would be great but not necessary; slitting, blanking, shearing, pre-paint and stamping. More important is experience in engineering, maintenance, quality, developing standard work, leader standard work, and driving team performance. This is a weak plant so this would be a turn-around role – we need someone who has experience in coming in and building a team, driving accountability and strong focus on safety and quality.
